Middle School Students Travel the Universe in 3DMiddle School students recently had the pleasure of viewing the universe in amazing 3D courtesy of a presentation by Aram Freidman, of Ansible Technologies Ltd. Mr Freidman, former engineering director to the Hayden Planetarium, has designed computer software and a unique dome screen to enable students to immerse themselves in a highly original and innovative view of the solar system. Students were led on a tour of the universe including ‘fly-bys" of planets and solar systems, views of solar and lunar eclipses from different perspectives and a demonstration of the 3D relationship between the Earth and Sun during the different seasons.The presentation was used as an introduction to the 8th grade unit on the Solar System and gave the students a wonderful base from which to start their studies. Mr Friedman"s knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject ensured that the presentation was very well received by staff and students alike
